The Saluting Their Service (STS) Commemorative Grants Program – NOW OPEN!

Batch 2 of the Saluting Their Service (STS) Commemorative Grants Program is now open!

This program is designed to commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service personnel in wars, conflicts and peace operations, and their families.

Community Grants (CG)

Grants to a maximum of $10,000 are available for community-based commemorative projects and activities.

These small grants are for projects and activities that are focused on the local community, commemorate the service and sacrifice of local community members, and are primarily accessed by the local community.

Some examples of CG projects and activities include:

  • development of an Honour Roll
  • restoration of an existing local War Memorial
  • supply and installation of a cabinet to display military memorabilia
  • installation of flagpoles

Major Grants (MG)

Grants between $10,001 and $150,000 are available for major commemorative projects and activities that are significant from a national, state, territory and/or regional perspective. MG grants will have a much wider focus than CG category applications and must be commemorative of the service and sacrifice of service personnel beyond the local community, and/or consist of elements that are available to the whole nation, or residents of a state, territory, or regional area. If your project has a high monetary value, it does not necessarily mean that it is considered an MG.

Some examples of MG projects and activities include:

  • construction of an interactive memorial walking track dedicated to all Australian service personnel from the Vietnam War
  • development of a digital honour roll and interpretive signage to commemorate the history of service personnel from a particular region
  • development of a documentary commemorating Australian Prisoners of War.

 

Batch 2 – applications submitted between 14 June 2023 and 10 October 2023

ANZAC DAY SERVICES 2023

 

This Anzac Day, Australians from all walks of life will come together to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac, marking one hundred years since the landing of the ANZACs on the shores of Gallipoli.

The importance of this anniversary cannot be understated. The Gallipoli campaign and the First World War shaped who we are as a nation. It cost us dearly, but the bravery and selflessness of the ANZACs will never be forgotten.

I ask you to pay your respects to the legacy of the ANZACs, as well as the servicemen and servicewoman who have followed in their footsteps in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations over a century of service.

I look forward to paying my respects with you at local services across Bonner this coming Anzac Day.

Please consider attending a local service.I recommend checking service and event times closer to the date.
